Pours with a larger than expected head. Color is a pinkish amber that tints the head a light pink. Sour aroma that is difficult to detect in the taste of the beer itself. The fruit flavors are subtle, if not underwhelming.

wyzzywyz22 (2094) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle, Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Hazy reddy-amber pour, with a small off-white head. Sweetish nose with berry fruit notes. Flavour was similar with some raspberry and blueberry alongside a little tartness and some pale malts. Fruit seems somehow artificial and a bit thin overall. I was expecting more here - disappointing.

On draft Soft parade pours a slightly pinkish yellow with a very thin off white head that doesn’t last long. The aroma is sweet fruit, blueberry and strawberry and wheat. The flavor is wheat, strawberry and blueberry. Overall this beer is average.

dinkle50 (1075) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Clear reddish to pink colored pour with a thin head. Aroma of musty fruit, notably strawberries. Medium mouth. Taste is light overall. Strawberry and hints of medicine. Something really strange about this beer. Melon rind & a strange mustiness.
